  1. In fact, it sold poorly, so much so that Fitzgerald died in 1940 thinking of himself as a failure, having produced no work of any substantial worth.

The timeless themes in the great gatsby by f scott fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby by F. Fitzgerald's glittering Jazz Age masterpiece. Jay Gatsby is a self-made man, famed for his decadent champagne-drenched parties.

Despite being surrounded by Long Island's bright and beautiful, Gatsby longs only for Daisy Buchanan. In shimmering prose, Fitzgerald shows Gatsby pursue his dream to its tragic conclusion. The Great Gatsby is an elegiac and exquisite portrait of the American Dream. I have a friend who absolutely adored The Great Gatsby back then and still avidly references it in his conversations with people. Sadly, I found these themes not the as vastly explored as I had expected before reading The Great Gatsby.

After hearing all the high praises, I expected to be enamoured by The Great Gatsby. On one level I found it rather simplistic in a way that causes people to read too much into things.

Gatsby is an enigma, ever-elusive to everyone.

  1. The point is, as timeless as The Great Gatsby is said to be, set in its historical context, perhaps there is more to be gained from it than I managed to.
  2. The forever elusive dream Scott and Zelda, with their daughter Scottie in Paris in 1925.
  3. Scott Fitzgerald The following excerpt from the book best describes how certain dreams are unachievable, no matter how hard we try to get to them. Happy birthday, George Orwell.

Nick almost worships him, his status, achievements and wealth. Besides Gatsby and Nick, there were significant characters but their significance lay in how their actions contributed to The Great Gatsby. Yes, I say deviating because anything other than heterosexuality was against the social norms as well as the law in the 1920s. Apparently not many pick up on that on their first read and yet that phallic symbol was so obvious to me.

I blame my ninth grade Literature teacher for this but I digress. The point is, as timeless as The Great Gatsby is said to be, set in its historical context, perhaps there is more to be gained from it than I managed to.

Will I try again?
